Not too long ago, I had the honor of working on a story with @intotheokavango and @natgeo following the source waters of the Okavango Delta from the Angolan Highlands, across Namibia, and into Botswana. The film about the journey made by @neilgelinas has been announced as a Tribeca Official Selection and will be premiering at the festival in April! Congrats @neilgelinas @drsteveboyes and the entire @intotheokavango team. @petekmuller @markstonephoto

PLEASE READ! Living along side predators is hard and complex work...and solutions don’t come easy. My good friend, Malou Anderson-Ramirez, proposed a groundbreaking idea to National Geographic Genius Challenge that could alter the relationship between ranching and wildlife, and change the way agriculturalists worldwide live with predators. Her idea was selected by Nat Geo as a Top 10 Finalist for the Nat Geo Chasing Genius Grant. Malou, a 3rd generation native of Tom Miner Basin, Montana, is an incredible voice for both ranching and wildlife communities in the Greater Yellowstone, and her solution is powerful. Friends, family and followers we need YOU to go to @natgeo and vote for her video. Watch her video, find out more and please VOTE with the link in my profile. And lastly please spread the word to your circles far and wide!

So proud to announce that the film work of @neilgelinas along side @intotheokavango @drsteveboyes and @natgeo will be premiering in Neil’s film ‘Into The Okavango’ at the Tribeca Film Festival this year! It was a great pleasure to be a small part of this enduring scientific dive into the source waters of the Okavango Delta and I couldn’t be more thrilled to see Neil’s work come to life on the screen. @markstonephoto @petekmuller

As far as I can tell, the value of climbing mountains is only found in how we carry the lessons we learn up high into the life we lead on flat ground. Looking for lessons with @matocoexpeditions (no Os) in the Lhotse couloir with the sun coming up on Everest behind. @eddiebauer #liveyouradventure


Sometimes the best way to find our way is by getting totally lost. Along the path of most resistance, Nuptse, Nepal. @eddiebauer #liveyouradventure
